Manager again assigned me irritating opportunity

I was somehow confused about this opportunity because, the manager was not that good with me and he would assign only complicated opportunities to me. Trusting this manager for one time, I told other manager that I would be able to support the opportunity, even though it is from most irritating account in my team. My team’s other manager looped me into this opportunity from one of the most irritating account and notified to my manager that I will be working on this opportunity. After completing that irritating opportunity, I was hoping that this opportunity would be much easier than the earlier one and got connected with the delivery person to acquire the background about the opportunity details and the amount of work required from my end. The initial call was much smoother than I expected, I got some information from the delivery person and opportunity seemed straight forward and I had a standard set of slides to be incorporated for the deck to be shared.

Gradual work load from the irritating opportunity

As you may know from earlier post that I was looped into support the most irritating opportunity my team has ever worked and to my surprise that the most irritating delivery POC has left the company, I was eagerly waiting to see how the opportunity would turn it out. So, the first day started off with the standard slides to be pulled off from the earlier decks and to have a storyline in place for the call and also to get the necessary info inputs from the onsite team. I have put the story line in place and also I have scheduled a call with the on-site team to know more about the opportunity details and have also looped in all the top leaders from my team as well as the other teams to get necessary inputs and hoping it would be a smooth one. However, it turned out to be the most complicated opportunity and the deadline was too short to complete within a week, the leaders were pointing out to me in the call to come up with the updated deck by next week and schedule the recurring calls every day to discuss on the update.

Session went well and fell ill on the same day

I had to take session on Monday, a day before my long vacation and I was completely pissed about the entire process, as it had no impact to anyone, and the session was planned entirely to show that one of my team’s manager was proactively monitoring the team. The session went well, and I was stammering here and there, however was able to manage little bit and was explaining the concepts in most confident manner. While this manager was communicating to me, he told me that starting from me, everyone in the team would take session on every week to detail about their unique approach adopted and any other relevant topics to work. However, at end of session he was conveying to the team that this session was completely optional and can be opted by individual who wanted present some unique learnings to the team. I was pissed off even more and while taking the session I was feeling little bit uncomfortable and was down for few hours with headache & fever.

Short week with no work at office

After back from long vacation at office, for first two days literally I had no work and was just killing time by watching random videos and browsing internet and on third day while starting to office, I was particularly sure that I would be assigned with one new opportunity and with so much anticipation I enter the office and to my surprise my manager was on leave that day. How excited would an employee get when he or she knows her manager was off and they no work in hand for the entire day. I was too much excited and again started watch videos and now comes the most surprising element at work. One of my colleagues was pinging me in office communicator that whether we can play “Bingo” game, as she was feeling too bored and frustrated. I immediately replied yes and the entire team at my location was playing bingo game in the communicator. How better can the workplace be, but it’s not all and there was many stunning news in the team. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”
